Cenergistic Client Featured in National Campaign

Monday, December 8, 2014

Cenergistic client Stockton City Unified School District is being featured by the U.S. EPA’s ENERGY STAR national Certification Nation campaign for its successful efforts to reduce energy use.  The school district had 44 buildings earn ENERGY STAR certification in 2014.
 
The Certification Nation campaign is encouraging organizations and business to earn ENERGY STAR certification for their buildings in 2014 to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the first ENERGY STAR certification of a commercial building.
 
Here is the article:
 
“Energy costs were rising at Stockton Unified School District. The team there had always worked diligently to ensure its operational infrastructure was energy efficient. However, they knew that to really get control of rising costs, they had to change staff perceptions about energy use. Led by energy specialists Monique Orr and Gilbert Rosa, the district took on a behavioral change management program. Since implementing the program, the district has seen an 18% reduction in energy use. Plus, virtually all its district buildings earned ENERGY STAR certification in 2014. But you won’t catch this district sitting on its laurels. They’re now starting the process of creating a Green Team of staff from across the district to continue to identify ways to save energy. ‘Conserving energy is no longer a task for us, it is part of what we do on a daily basis,’ said Gina Hall, principal at Rio Calaveras Elementary School.”
